Lord Puttnam to chair A Future for Public Service Television - Inquiry Event for Scotland

The Inquiry into the future of public service television is chaired by Lord Puttnam. It has been set up to examine the roles and responsibilities of British television in a digital world and to make recommendations on how television can foster a more creative and robust public culture in the 21st century. It aims to address changing production, consumption and distribution practices and the funding and regulation of audiovisual content. The secretariat is based at Goldsmiths, University of London, and our project partners include the Guardian, BAFTA, Vice UK, the British Academy and the Hansard Society. The Inquiry is organising a series of events and will be producing a final Report at the end of June 2016. See www.futureoftv.org.uk for more details.
